Ramona never fails, she just keeps going and going. This is after I prunned her middle of June after her first flush, These picture were taken today August 22nd. I hard prunned her down to about 6" and fertilizer her with farm aged cow poo from the cow pasture. Please note she is not in full hot sun all day, she gets morning sun only. I also prunned Warsaw Nike and fertlizer and watered each daily, I will not prunned either again until early spring and then I'll only trim and clean each up a bit before their big flush early spring next year. The white powder you see on Warsaw is sevin dust, I have something that like's him to much and is eating on him.. Enjoy ! Sandy

Hi sandy,
I am a lurker from some of the other forums. Your Ramona and Warsaw are lovely! I have Ramona and have been so discouraged as she blooms nicely in spring, but gets fried in summer each year, especially the last two. Your hints were helpful, perhaps I need to move her.
Thank you!

Warsaw Nike(Warszawska Nike) is actually a SHE (Nike - Greek goddess of victory). JFTR.

Very nice pics of Ramona.
I went to Clematis on the Web and looked it up. I noticed they show it as lavender blue and also it has deeper coloring on the tepals. Does yours also show the deeper coloring on the tepals? (hope I used the right terminology)
